Nothing pleases us more than seeing smiles on faces. We know that exceptional care goes beyond making sure individuals have a safe, secure place to live and making sure their daily needs are met. We've identified a number of behaviours that will help you shine while you're working at Hollybank. This is what you need to be, if you want to #BeSomeone here.

Have you got what it takes to change lives?

Be confident

Push yourself out of your comfort zone from time to time; don’t be afraid to challenge things; try new things – you don’t know unless you have a go!

Being confident is about: being self-assured, asking your colleagues for help when you need it; challenging any behaviour or working practices that you feel are inappropriate or unsafe.


Be curious

Ask questions; have a voice and share your views; look for new ways of doing things that get better results; be open to learning; show an interest in the job you’re doing and the people you meet here.

Being curious is about: being inquisitive, welcoming change, showing an interest in other people’s jobs, not just your own; asking lots of questions about the way that we do things and why; putting yourself forward to try new things and put new ways of working into practice to see if it’s any better than the status quo.

Be happy

Enjoy your time here; build strong relationships and give your best self; appreciate the difference you are making by being here; do something every day that makes you smile.

Being happy is about: being cheerful and positive, bringing your best self to work and immersing yourself in the tasks you are given; exploring opportunities for development and stretch within Hollybank; sharing your enthusiasm for life with the people we are here to support.



Be kind

Always. Look for ways to help your colleagues; remember to get the work/life balance right; try and see things from a different perspective

Being kind is about: caring and compassion, reaching out to your colleagues if they look like they’re struggling; being an active member of the team, working together to achieve shared goals; taking care of yourself outside of work and seeking support if you need it.
